THIS MONTH'S DESIGN IDEA MAKE MORE ROOM

Make more room
This month's design idea Make more room

To make more room, the best solution is to tidy more! So take advantage of the new year to make this your first resolution.

Especially maximising storage in your wardrobes and closets. Arrange your shoes below, linens you use only occasionally above and gather your small garments in the appropriately sized boxes. This avoids scattering them and any muddle.

MUST HAVES FOR MAKING MORE ROOM

To make more room, focus on unused space. Build your shelving and bookcases right up to the ceiling. Choose low, shallow units for windows. Go for wall lights rather than standard lamps. Consider corner units. And convert your cubby hole under the stairs into an office area or a library. Then, make clever use of furniture that is multifunctional, for example, a bed fitted with storage drawers, or that can change size as you wish: an extendable table, folding chair, stackable stool etc. Lastly, create the illusion using a mirror to reflect light, curtains in the same colour as the walls to open out onto the outdoors …
